Summer Reading Plan Kickoff With French Fry Nachos

Inside: French Fry Nachos. This post is done in partnership with Disney-Hyperion.

If you were to describe our family – readers would be at the top of the list. We love reading together, separate… somedays I can hardly get my kids to put down the books they are engrossed in. With summer coming quickly we want to keep up our reading habits and have developed a plan to make it fun and filled with revelry.

We’ve decided to create a summer reading plan that will keep everyone hooked on books, a family summer book club!

And we kicked off the summer book club with a little pre-party last week to celebrate. I’ve shared my love of Mo Willems before here and here, his books our some of our household favorites. And the 10 year anniversary of the beloved book series was the perfect inspiration for our summer reading plan kick-off party, which include my favorite french fry nachos. The books are a quick read for my kids, they’re funny and they always have a great lesson to communicate.

Summer Reading Plan

Here’s how our summer reading plan book club is going to work… each week someone different will pick the book we read. The person who picks the book will get to decide a special treat for the whole family to enjoy while we discuss the book. They’ll have to think up 3-4 questions to ask about the book and hopefully, it will engage us all in a fun discussion of the topics that inspire our kids.

Although my kids are older now and reading chapter books, for our kick-off party we each picked a favorite Mo Willems book. Just as a trial run, we had everyone pick a book and a question to ask. Choosing short quick books to try the concept with was a great way to kick off the summer book club and help the kids understand what we are aiming for. If your kids are younger they could use these books for summer reading as well, they are some of our family favorites!

  • […] always a hit of epic proportions, a beet dip with crackers is one of my favorite evening snacks. Frachos!!! Which are exactly what they sound like – nachos with fries and are as good as you can […]

  • […] Frachos are basically every teenager’s dream – way better than sliced bread. ;) When it comes to graduation celebration ideas for food, we are reaching first for nachos in french fry form, covered in gooey cheese and crispy bacon? YASSSS. Really, they’re pretty amazing to anyone who tries them, but I’m sure high school/college students, with their endless appetites can appreciate them the most. If you serve these up at your graduation party, I can guarantee it’s something your grad and all their friends will be talking about long after the caps and gowns have been hung up and the diplomas displayed.
